Cascade scores 3 second-half goals to beat Stanwood

STANWOOD – Many soccer matches unfold as stories of two separate and distinct halves.

The adage held true in Thursday’s Wesco North soccer match between Cascade and Stanwood. All four goals were scored in the second half as the Bruins defeated the Spartans 3-1 at Spartan Stadium.

The game’s first 39 minutes saw few scoring opportunities and tit-for-tat attacking and defending strategies that yielded only five combined shots and a 0-0 tie at intermission.

What a difference a half makes. Just before the break, Stanwood goalkeeper Carl Pilcher took a boot to the head and was unable to return for the second half.

Cascade capitalized quickly and continuously.

In the 42nd minute, Bruin Jeff Gosslee took a Dirk Snel throw-in down the left flank and punched a near-post rocket past Stanwood back-up keeper Kyle Klempel to put Cascade up 1-0.

Seven minutes later, a scrum in front of the goal led to Cascade’s Jon DeOliveira scoring the second Bruin goal.

In the 52nd minute, Snel’s through ball led to an Eric Miller far-post finish to put the Bruins up 3-0.

“I thought we started poorly, but at half I asked them to increase pressure and play a stronger game,” Cascade coach Daghan Kesim said. “I was proud of how they finished in the second half.”

A late goal by Spartan Ryo Oishi (62nd minute) rounded out the scoring.
